Power system finished

Thanks to JOF member feedback and JOF threads, I finished most of my power room upgrade today.

Lined back of power room with plywood

Built separate vented battery box

Added 600 watt inverter

Added 100 watt solar panel and 30 amp controller

Added appropriate fuses and disconnect switches.

Nice job. How hard was it fishing the solar wires down the vent pipe?

Turned out to be easy. The vent pipe drops through the linen closet, so I simply drilled 1/2 inch hole in the side of the pipe about 12 inches below the ceiling and brought it back out, then straight down to basement and power room.
